Mike Meyer and his book The Three Kitties That Saved My Life
AN UPLIFTING TRUE STORY OF LOVE - from love and
loss to love renewed - a feel-good read
Losing loved ones is an awful fact of life; losing one's loving spouse, one's day-to-day partner through life, especially in the prime of life, is one of the most unbearable tolls that we humans are forced to endure. This is the true story of my journey from grieving widower, not caring if I lived or died, to the once-again happily married man I am today, a man who both loves and cherishes life. My three kitties have given me a new zest for living.
Equally inspiring and entertaining, my story begins with loss and tears, but it ends with lots of love and laughter. I think that you will find yourself moved by my journey.
It is amazing how time helps. In time, I have learned to overcome my own albatross. I have learned to live again, to love again. Life is a gift reads a plaque on our dining room wall, and that sums up what I have gained from the three kitties that saved my life. From Coco, I learned to care again. From Kitty, I learned to love again. From Pom Pom, I have learned how to cope with my own demons, the effects of aging being one of these. Pom Pom has taught me to accept what is and then to move onward. Yes, I have learned plenty from my three kitties.
My journey has been a long one, a difficult one at times, but it has a happy ending. The three kitties in my life have made it so. They have all helped me to become the happy-to-be-alive man that I am today. I now accept rather than cope. I live each day to the fullest, knowing full well that life is a gift, and a very precious one at that. I look back on my life and I often think that I must be the luckiest man in the world. I have so much to be thankful for. The wonderment and beauty of life are both so dear to me.
And, to add a delicious icing to the lovely taste of my life, I can say with total honesty to the whole world, my voice booming into the sky, my dancing feet not caring in the least who might see me, that I have been very fortunate to have done something that brings more sheer delight and wonderful pride to me than anything else that I have accomplished in my life: I have fallen madly, heads-over-heels in love not once, but twice, and how many others can say that?
Thank you, Kitty!
What some of the reviewers have to say:
Denise Jones wrote
This is like drinking tea and honey on a cold day. The story warms you up, it is written in such a comfortable and conversational style that the tea analogy is ever more appropriate. It felt as if I were listening to a new friend telling me how his life came together after a great personal loss. The kitties, the fur-balls steal the show. This is truly a read I would recommend to everybody! A 4.5*read.

Really great book that will lift your spirits. Even after a major tragedy, life goes on. I love that throughout this whole book you are reminded to look for the positive in life. I have to say I now want another cat! Perfect read if you need to be reminded to look up in life and smile, everything will work out.
